At this time Simple Filter use in Results Reporting should be limited as much as possible.
Simple Filters currently cause issues when opening reports from a dashboard message link for any users with a reporting role lower than Enterprise Manager. The report will not load.
They can also cause issues if the report was built using Internet Explorer and opened in Chrome resulting the report not loading.
Once the BO Upgrade is complete, Simple Filters will now be replaced by Drill Filters which have an expanded functionality, and once completed, must be turned on via Analyze > Drill.
Input Controls will still be available after the upgrade. More information on Input Controls:
